‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan’ Returns To The Big Screen For 35th Anniversary Celebration!

‘Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan’ Returns To The Big Screen For 35th Anniversary Celebration!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” the epic science-fiction adventure that continues to captivate audiences, marks its 35th anniversary with a two-day-only return to cinemas nationwide. “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” will be presented in a digitally remastered Director’s Cut and, as an added bonus for Star Trek and movie fans, William Shatner will appear in a newly produced in-depth interview that will play before each screening.

Fathom Events and Paramount Pictures will present “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan”on Sunday, September 10, and Wednesday, September 13, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. local time each day.

Tickets for “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan 35th Anniversary” can be purchased online by visiting www.FathomEvents.com or at participating theater box offices. Moviegoers throughout the U.S. will be able to enjoy this event in more than 600 select movie theaters. For a complete list of theater locations visit the Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

“Making Star Trek II seems like only yesterday,” Shatner said. “Even back then, we knew we were creating something really special, and to have The Wrath of Khan back on the big screen 35 years later is a wonderful testament both to the film itself and to the incredible passion of Star Trek fans.”

Director Nicholas Meyer’s “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” was a box-office hit upon its release – the sixth highest-grossing film of 1982 – and continues to be revered and quoted by fans. The film, a continuation of the original Star Trek series episode “The Space Seed,” finds longtime Starfleet nemesis Khan Noonien Singh (Ricardo Montalban) alive and well, marooned on a seemingly lifeless planet. When he’s discovered by Chekov (Walter Koenig), Khan will stop at nothing to exact revenge against the man who exiled him on the barren world: Admiral James T. Kirk.

Kirk must lead his loyal crew – including Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Bones (DeForest Kelley), Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), Sulu (George Takei), Scotty (James Doohan) – and an unprepared group of trainees led by half-human, half-Klingon Lt. Saavik (Kirstie Alley) in a race against time to stop Khan from deploying a device that threatens the entire universe. Bibi Besch, Paul Winfield and Merritt Butrick also star in the film, which features an unforgettable musical score by the late James Horner. The Director’s Cut of “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan” is currently available on Blu-ray, with more than two hours of in-depth bonus features.

Star Trek II holds a special place in the hearts of Star Trek fans,” Tom Lucas, Fathom Events VP of Studio Relations, said. “Fathom is proud to work with Paramount Pictures to present it again on the big screen, with all of its excitement, action, drama and emotion.”

TO BE TAKEI: Jennifer Kroot On Capturing The World of George Takei On Film!

TO BE TAKEI: Jennifer Kroot On Capturing The World of George Takei On Film!

jennifer-kroot-2014-feature

‘To Be Takei’ is an entertaining and moving look at the many roles played by eclectic 77-year-old actor/activist George Takei whose wit, humor and grace has allowed him to become an internationally beloved figure who may be more relevant today than ever. The film balances unprecedented access to the day-to-day life of George and his husband/business partner Brad Takei, starting with George’s fascinating personal journey from his childhood in a U.S. internment camp for Japanese Americans during WWII, through his iconic and groundbreaking role as Sulu on “Star Trek,”® to his rise as an internet phenomenon with over 7-million Facebook fans. The documentary, featuring all surviving Star Trek® cast members on screen for the first time since their hit films, is an entertaining look at the life and work of the multi-faceted George Takei. In the film, director Jennifer M. Kroot (“It Came From Kuchar”) brings the viewer behind the scenes, and provides a revealing, rarely seen look into Takei’s world and showing what it truly means ‘To Be Takei.’ Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Jennifer Kroot to discuss her career, the process of capturing George Takei’s amazing life story on film and much more! 

I want to give our readers and the viewers of this amazing film a little bit of background on you as a director. What intrigued you early on about filmmaking and made you pursue your passion as a career?

Jennifer Kroot

Jennifer Kroot

I was in my teens in the 80s and there were a lot of independent films at that the time, like early David Lynch and the films that Alex Cox directed like ‘Repo Man’ and ‘Sid and Nancy.’ I loved those films. Then I got into what would be considered cult films, smaller weirder films that were on the edge of that, for example, experimental films. I ended up going to school at the San Francisco Art Institute and getting into George Kuchar. It certainly never crossed my mind to want to make a documentary until I met George Kuchar because he was such an incredible personality. [laughs] I would try to describe how funny and interesting he was but I could never do it by imitating him, so I thought “What better way to do it than a documentary?” I didn’t make the documentary about him until I had already know him for about fifteen years. [laughs] Before that I was making very narrative films or films that were more experimental. At some point, you just have to stick with it and it can take a long time to really get anywhere with your filmmaking. I don’t know if I would feel the same way if I were growing up now because it seems that everything tries to be so big. There is so much big moviemaking and even small films seem like they are all trying to be discovered. There is all of this reality stuff and everyone has their iPhones and they are making movies. I am just sort of inundated with too much media, so I don’t know if I would find it as appealing now. Anyway, starting back then, those are the types of films I really liked. I always say, “Don’t bother making a film unless you are really obsessed because it is too much otherwise.” You almost have to be at the point where you say, “My life will be ruined if I don’t make this film.” Otherwise, don’t do it, unless you are making a big film or have a big project. That is sort of a different thing but these smaller films are really hard. Bigger films are hard to make as well, it is just different.

Your latest film is ‘To Be Takei.’ How did you come across the story of George Takei and what made you realize it was a tale you wanted to tell in documentary form?

'To Be Takei' - A Must See Documentary

‘To Be Takei’ – A Must See Documentary

I am a lifelong ‘Star Trek’ fan. I loved the show in reruns when I was a kid. I went to a couple of ‘Star Trek’ Conventions! [laughs] I continued to love it as an adult. I wasn’t obsessed with it but I would watch it if it was on. I didn’t really follow the actors who played the characters or anything. I loved the original movies too or at least enjoyed them! [laughs] I guess I started noticing George, like a lot of people, in 2005 when he publicly came out at 68 years old. It never really occurred to me what his sexual orientation, or anyone on ‘Star Trek’ for that matter, might be. I just thought it was really interesting. He seemed like such a charming voice. He laughed at himself and was very open and honest about his experience. Every time I would hear him on the radio or on the news talking about LGBT civil rights, I would stop what I was doing and what to watch because he seemed so charming. I decided to read his autobiography from the 1990s, which came out before he was openly gay, but detailed his experience of being imprisoned in Japanese internment camps as a child. Although I knew that history was true and made perfect sense with his age, I was shocked that Mr. Sulu would have been imprisoned by the United States government at age five! [laughs] It just seemed kind of unbelievable and then that boy would go on to become the first friendly face in Hollywood on television and one of the icons from what is arguably one of the biggest pop cultural phenomena in the world. I wanted to connect the dots really badly because that seemed like quite a range. I ended up writing to his agent and his agent had liked my previous film, ‘It Came from Kuchar,’ which was great. From there, he introduced me to George and Brad. You know, you never just meet George, you meet George and Brad. [laughs] Maybe other people knew that but I did not know what to expect. That made it a little more intimidating because Brad wants to know all of the details; which is smart because there are a lot of details in filmmaking! We just had a series of discussions over the course of several months and finally started shooting.

How did your original vision for the film differ from what we see as the final product? Were there any surprises for you there?

George and Brad Takei

George and Brad Takei

I think the biggest surprise was Brad, the relationship between the two men and being able to include their present day relationship as sort of a romantic comedy thread through the film. I didn’t know who Brad was beforehand because he wasn’t in the media that much. I felt that they really opened up to me about who they were as a couple because they wanted that to be seen in the documentary. They wanted to show the normalcy, which is a term they always use, of their relationship. A lot of people really resonate with that. I think anyone who has been in a long-term relationship really can find something to relate to in their dynamics. That became a really key part of the film. You have to really be open to surprises when you are filming. All of the scenes I was planning from way back before I met George are definitely in the film but how you find those scenes in the footage can be a mystery, You have to go with where your subject leads you. You have to be open to that, which is sometimes hard because you are interesting what you want it to be and how you want it to be. It was great to get to know Brad that way. When I first saw him on camera I was a bit nervous and thought, “Oh God, he is really trying to control this. He is telling me to cut.” [laughs] it just became something that he sometimes did and it had to do with his comfort level. It was very real to how he was feeling about it.

As a filmmaker, was there anything you wanted to accomplish stylistically or in some other matter that might differ from your earlier work?

I think this film is fairly similar, in some ways, to my early works style-wise. There is a lot more present day footage in ‘To Be Takei” than in ‘It Came From Kuchar.’ I think both films play with time and I think I do it a little more in ‘To Be Takei.’ It isn’t structured exactly lineally. There is some linear time in it but it is like we are starting with present day and then reflecting back to different points in George’s life that may be discussed in linear order but sometimes not. It is more like you are in the present reflecting on different memories that haunt, inspire or motivate you in some way. You learn about George through these flashbacks and it is a little more stream of conscience. I often appreciate directors who do interesting things with time. Richard Linklater (Boyhood) is a great example. He always seems to do interesting things with time. You can’t tell if you are in real time or what pace you are in. I think film is the only medium to really explore time in, so why not do something interesting if it makes sense to your project. Sometimes I think portraits that are just linear can be a little dry. Not always but sometimes, it just depends. Playing with time can give you freedom to explore.

George Takei

George Takei

You have been very fortunate to have subjects who are very interesting people. What is the biggest life lesson you took away from this experience?

I have always thought of myself as being somewhat of a negative person or a moderately negative person. Having spent so much time with George Takei, who is such a positive person, I think it either rubbed off on me a little or I realized that I had some of that in me! [laughs] Independent filmmaking is pretty tedious. It can be hard, frustrating and depressing. It usually takes several years and fundraising is hard and can be sometimes disappointing. It is just hard to get it together to do that and keep hope that it is going to work out. I kind of realized, “Oh my God! I must be at least a bit hopeful because I can always see where I am going with projects like this.” I think being around someone who is relentlessly positive and feeling hopeful after all that George has been through, which is a lot than anything I have been through, helped me put things in perspective. I really think his positivity rubbed off and keeps things reasonably in perspective.

What can we expect from you next when it comes to filmmaking?

I have a couple of projects I am considering but I am not quite ready to commit to them yet. These two documentaries have been very back-to-back, about the two different Georges! [laughs] I am kind of looking forward to taking a couple months to think about what it is I want to do before I jump back into something.

Totally understandable! What you have done is terrific, so we are anxiously awaiting whatever you have in store for us in the future! Thank you so much for your time today!

Thank you very much, Jason! It’s been so nice to talk to you. Take care.

‘To Be Takei’ is being released in select cities, VOD platforms and iTunes on August 22nd. To learn more about the film, visit the official website at www.tobetakei.com.

Howard Show Stern Sidekick Artie Lange Hospitalized In Suicide Attempt

Howard Show Stern Sidekick Artie Lange Hospitalized In Suicide Attempt

Comedian and beloved Howard Stern Show sidekick Artie Lange landed in the hospital on Saturday, January 2nd after stabbing himself nine times in an apparent suicide attempt, sources told The NY Post.

A law-enforcement source said that Lange’s mother called 911 Saturday morning after she entered his Hoboken apartment and found the comedian had sustained six “hesitation wounds” and three deep plunges. A source close to Lange’s management team confirmed that the wounds were self-inflicted, adding that his mother had come to visit him that day to drop off food. Thankfully, surgeons managed to save Lange’s life despite heavy bleeding.

“We all have our demons, Artie has given this show tremendous moments of great comedy. He’s a tremendous contributor. He is a good man. Don’t forget how great he is.” commented Howard Stern said on-air this week referring to Lange’s past battles with addiction.

Icon Vs. Icon spoke to Artie Lange in November about his career, his recently released comedy album ‘Jack and Coke’ and the challenges of stand-up comedy. Check out the interview with the always outrageous Artie Lange at this location >

Comedy Icon Artie Lange Talks Standup, Howard Stern and More!

Comedy Icon Artie Lange Talks Standup, Howard Stern and More!

feature_artie_lange

Artie Lange is a man that needs little introduction. His journey from New Jersey longshoreman to comedy superstar has been well documented by his daily contributions to The Howard Stern Show and in his riveting autobiography, “Too Fat Too Fish.” Whether it is playing the role of the actor, comedian, New York Times Bestselling author, radio sidekick or all around wildman, there are few trails that Artie Lange hasn’t blazed over the past few years. We have all been on the edge of our seats as the roller coaster ride that is the Artie Lange saga has unfolded on The Howard Stern Show and in the press. Even in the darkest chapters of Lange’s story, two things that have never been in question are the way he relates to the common man and the plethora of razor sharp material that he brings along when he hits the stage. Now, this comedic legend is giving back to the fans who paved the way to his super-stardom by giving them something that they have been clamoring for several years — a live comedy album by the name of ‘Jack and Coke’. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently sat down with this comedy icon to discuss what drove him to pursue comedy as a career, the milestones he has crossed along the way and what the future holds for one of comedy’s brightest stars. So without further ado, ladies and gentleman, we give you the legendary Mr. Artie Lange…


First off, on behalf of myself and a lot of the people I know, I really have to thank you and the rest of the guys at the Howard Stern Show for keeping a lot of us sane in our cubicles over the years. You guys are amazing.

[laughs] No problem, no problem!

200534645-001Looking back, what drew you to comedy initially and what made you throw caution to the wind and take a shot at it professionally?

Ya know, it is a story that is common among a lot of comedians. It started with me being a fan of it. I can remember watching ‘The Honeymooners’ and wanting to be funny on TV, then seeing Richard Pryor or George Carlin when I got older. Also, guys like Eddie Murphy, Sam Kinison and watching Howard Stern or Dave Letterman. It was being a fan of it… I think people would say I was a bit of a class clown… and really, it was not having anything else to try. I didn’t go to college. So it was either that or maybe unloading trucks for the rest of my life. That’s a big time way to motivate you! [laughs] The first time I started out in comedy, the first time I ever tried it, I was nineteen, in 1987. I meet people who were in college and had way better options than to keep going to New York to try and be funny every night. They moved on and got better jobs, but with me it was like, even when I bombed in the beginning, a chance at getting into it was way better then anything else that I could have been doing.

Well we all know that it has paid off for you now, but was there a particular moment where you said “Ok, now I’ve made it!” as a standup comic?

Hmmmm, the moment that I felt like I made it? I had done standup before the Stern Show and I had become a regular at clubs and stuff like that. There are plateaus when you do standup comedy. When you first become a regular at a club and they give you a spot, that is cool, but I wouldn’t say it got through to me then. “Making it” is such a strong term. You see, when I got on the Stern Show, I knew I was going to be able to get a bigger audience but I also knew that I would be under the microscope more, so I wanted my work to be better. When I put out my first DVD, “It’s The Whiskey Talking,” I worked really hard on that material, a major distributor put it out, people bought it and seemed to like it, I said “That’s makin’ it, I guess!”

You just released your first live comedy CD, “Jack and Coke,” which is comprised of much of your material from the last 4 years on the road, what was that like to put together for you?

artie-lange-2It was difficult. Ya know, once ya put something out, you sorta blow the material. It’s not like music where you can keep singing the songs and stuff, ya know? People have to hear something different in comedy. I played Carnegie Hall in 2006 for the New York Comedy Festival and I did my old act which was a lot of “It’s The Whisky Talking” and sorta buried it there. Because I had played Carnegie Hall and was on the Stern Show, I was able to be playing theaters and making a lot more money. So, money motivated the writing process a little bit and I started comprising some new stuff that I had been thinking about and developing it. I started at little clubs and went to theaters and between three and four years of touring with it, it finally got tight enough that I said “Ok, I am ready to do another DVD type thing!” So it was a long process motivated by time and money, ya know? I needed a new act to tour with if I was going to tour and touring meant way more money after Carnegie Hall then I was used to, ya know?

Definitely. What is the biggest challenge for you as a stand-up comic?

The biggest challenge? Just consistency. Ya know, it’s almost like baseball players. Baseball is a long season and you can go 4 for 4 in a game and you want to try to avoid a slump and stuff like that. In baseball it is expected that you might go into a little slump but with comedy, if you go from city to city, every show has to be good. Of course, there are better shows than others but there are times on the road that I wish I had taped a particular set because it was great. There are a lot of factors, you could be tired or it’s a crazy crowd that is more rowdy and you might do a show that wasn’t as good as the last one. Then you are like “Fuck! I know how to do this, I know how it works! Every show should be good!” Consistency is the biggest challenge, consistently doing it well and putting on a good show.

You have said on the air that you are taking a break from the road in 2010 after your upcoming gigs. Did you have any reservations about taking time off or making that decision?

No, not at all because I am really beat and anyone that knows me knows that I have had some problems in the past with some uhh… substance abuse here and there. [laughs] Where that flares up a lot is on the road. Now that this stuff is on tape and out there, I felt like it is time to take a break. I need to write a new act anyway and I also need to write a new book! I signed a contract to write a second book and I just started that. They want it out by September of 2010, I’m told, so I have another project to do, a book to write. Taking time off now is the perfect time to do it.

Gotcha.

There is an hour and a half of material on this thing (Jack & Coke) and I’ll tell ya, it is a lot of stuff that I wanted to purge, all the stuff that I had been doing and felt is ready. Now I start from scratch and write a new act, so I will need time to do that and write the book. I wanted to get Jack & Coke out for the holidays, it is a good thing business-wise, obviously. So again, now is the perfect time to take off, I have no reservations about it.

It is good to hear that your second book is in the works. Do you have a working title for it yet?

Right now, it is tentatively titled “College Is For Losers.”

artie-lange-8When you released your first book, “Too Fat To Fish,” did you have any idea that it would soar to the heights that it did?

No. People mentioned things like “Oh maybe because you are on The Howard Stern Show you will get on the New York Times Bestsellers List.” I thought that was amazing. I was like “Oh that’s cool! That would be great if that happens!” But for it to open up at number one, that’s insane! [laughs] No, I didn’t expect that at all. Then the paperback came out, I never thought the first book would do well enough to have a paperback. When the paperback came out I was like “Well, who knows?! Maybe people won’t care.” but that got up to number six and was on the list for a while. Not at all did I expect that, no.

If they made “Too Fat To Fish” into a major motion picture, I was just curious who you would like to see play the role of Artie Lange?

[laughs] It would be funny if I fucked it up so hard that I couldn’t even play me in the movie for at least a little while! [chuckles] But if they were going to cast somebody?

Yeah.

Clearly that kid who played a young Darth Vader, Hayden Christensen. He would be perfect for me. They’d have to put him in a fat suit. Lemme think, hummmm. Someone who looks like me I guess. [laughs] Jack Black looks like me but I don’t think he has any interest in playing me! [laughs] I don’t know, I guess everyone says that they want Robert De Niro to play them but he is getting to old for that now.

Yeah, I think you are right.

I wanna play me. That’s it, I am putting my foot down!

You live a very public life by way of the 5 hours a day that you are on the Howard Stern show. Has that been a blessing or a curse for you?

artie-lange-4It’s a little bit of both because when you are honest about stuff you make a connection with people. Any comedian or performer would tell you that the one thing that they want to do is make a connection and that is what that does but it effects other people in your life too, ya know? Like if you are out with your girlfriend and people recognize you and they come up say something like “Oh, is this your girlfriend?” and you are like “Yeah, Ya know, yeah!” Or they know stuff that you talked about on the air that you don’t even remember saying. One time I was on stage in Phoenix or something and some guy yelled out “Hey Art, did you pay that parking ticket?!!” and I was like “What parking ticket?” so he says “Remember, you said you got a parking ticket in Chicago?” and I’m like “No. I guess I paid it, I guess!” [laughs] They know shit that you don’t even remember talking about! But it is fun. 99% of the people that come up to me are very nice. If you got a crisis going on, they say “Hang in there, we’re rooting for you!” For me it is more of a blessing because it is like having a bunch of best friends that I have never met, ya know?

You have brushed elbows with so many icons in your career and even become an icon yourself. I am curious to know what the best piece of advice that someone has given you along the way, in your career?

Best piece of advice, hmmm. That’s an interesting one. Quincy Jones, when I was first doing MAD TV, when I first came back from rehab with the troubles I was having, I saw him at a shoot for a sketch. He put his arms around me and he hugged me. He said “I’ve been thinking about you man, I’ve been thinking about ya!” It was really cool, he goes “I know a lot of people got a lot of problems with drugs, like Miles Davis had a problem with drugs.” It was just so surreal to me that a couple of years before this I was a longshoremen and now Quincy Jones is talking to me about Miles Davis. He said “You just got to get to a point where you know your limitations and balance everything out.” Knowing your limitations is a big thing because some people can do it and can go that hard and some people can’t. They can’t balance everything. If you go over your limitations your balance is off and you can’t do anything. I think that is true of partying or of work. Some people get so big that they cant sing, act, dance or whatever and they end up becoming a joke. I think something as simple as knowing your limitation and keeping your balance is good personal and professional advice.

Artie Lange and George Takei

Artie Lange and George Takei

What do you think the biggest misconception about yourself is?

I think it’s that I am homophobic or a misogynist. Nothing could be further from the truth, believe me. I make a lot of jokes and a joke is a joke. I won’t apologize for making a joke but I really don’t hate anybody just for being who they are. There are individuals that I have hated over the years because they are them! [laughs] But I don’t have a hateful bone in my body for any group of people. It’s the direct opposite. Even when some people come up to me in a positive way, idiots that laughed at Archie Bunker because they agreed with him, they think I am one way and nothing could be further from the truth.

Last one for you, Artie. Do you have any words for the critics or the fans?

Well, critics are weird. I don’t know what to say about a critic. The line has become so blurred. Some critics are just fans and now with the age of the internet, everyone is a critic. Everyone’s got a blog or something. I have never been someone who has gotten great reviews, so I am sorta over that. A critic is gonna do whatever they want and I don’t really have much to say to them. But to the fans, I want to thank them for making me feel so welcome wherever I see them. I think being on the radio gives you a stronger bond with fans then anything else. I think that Howard Stern’s fans love him way more then Brad Pitt’s fans love him, ya know what I mean? It’s a strong connection! Howard has created a great atmosphere there that I have been able to fit into. I would tell the fans thanks for making me feel like I am part of a family that they are in too, I really appreciate it. And thanks for spending their hard earned money to see me or buy something. It’s not easy nowadays to go see someone at a club or whatever, so I appreciate all of that.

57797857Very cool. Anything else we should know about before I let you get on with your day?

Nope. Just “Jack and Coke” on DVD and CD at F.Y.E. and check out www.artie-lange.com, my website. It would be great if you mentioned that.

Not a problem, Artie. I picked up “Jack and Coke” earlier this week. It’s a 5 out of 5, man. Having seen you a few times over the past couple of years, I think it really encompasses all that you have done in that time period in a great way.

Wow. That is great to hear that!

Yup. You hit the nail on that head with this one, my friend.

Thank you! I appreciate all the kind words and I appreciate your time as well, man.

Take it easy, Artie. All the best to you and your family and “Thank ya for your call!”

Absolutely! [laughs] You too man!
